I got a repost too.. xD

Tryin' to help the world, one blog type thing at a time. ;)

No really though, I only did that for the reasons given in the message. Us underage guys aren't represented enoughh! It's all always people that are in their 20s or whatever, for whom this stuff, while not being as easy as it should be, is still considerably easier, and it's just not fair.. I know who I am just as well as somebody three years older than me does, thankya much! And so do any other transguys my age! ><

I've done enough ranting on the subject though. xD

I feel so bad for guys (and

I feel so bad for guys (and girls) like you. D: I didn't even come out to myself until I was almost 16, and my dad is fantastic, so I really lucked out. I mean, my transition hasn't been a cakewalk but it could have been tons worse.

But yeah, I wanted to write a book because most books by trans guys are waay over our age group. Maybe you should write one too. :P

I've met trans people younger than you, and it's frustrating, even the ones on hormone blockers get frustrated because everyone around them is going through puberty and they're stuck looking like preteens until they reach 16. :/ I think adults get so caught up in their "what if's" that they forget that kids should be able to enjoy being kids and that kids know themselves better than anybody else possibly could.

And yeah, I agree that it's dumb. It's the same thing with my sister kind of. I mean, she's wanted to move up here since she moved away, she has not wavered on this -at all-, but the courts don't really listen to her because she's young. You'd think that years and years of saying the same thing would give a person some credibility. :/

Best of luck to you by the way. I know that the waiting and the uncertainty can get really rough at times but it's worth the trouble.

Yeah.. like people always

Yeah.. like people always say that I'm so lucky for figuring myself out early and all that, but at the same time it's like "Yeah, but now instead of awkwardness I get dysphoria. Maybe it's a little better, but not by much..."

Maybe I should do that. If only I could stick with a project for long enough. xP

Yeah, it's suckish. It's like adults completely block teen years from their minds, even though they like to pretend they didn't. Like.. it's pretty damn obvious this isn't a phase. It's pretty damn obvious this is right for me. And I really really hate feeling restricted by my dysphoria when I should be able to enjoy myself so much more at this point in my life. It's so freaking frustrating! Guhhh. ><

Heh, thanks. I know it's worth the trouble, I just wish the trouble was at least a little bit more compressed. ><

You know what they say about

You know what they say about the grass being greener... I mean, denial sucks, big time. It was worse in some ways but better in others I think. I think the worst would be to know from a very young age, and be very certain about it, but have it completely repressed until adulthood due to exceedingly unsupportive parents. I don't know how anybody deals with that. X_X

Yeah I know. I mean, you haven't changed your mind in the last like, seven years, it's not going to change. It's not like it was a decision in the first place. :/ It's just as clear that you're a boy as it is with me or any other guy but you're being delayed because apparently being 15 makes you less creditable for some stupid reason. Though what it really is, is that doctors don't want to get in trouble for giving a 'kid' hormones. I hate politics. A lot.

I wish I could make it happen sooner. I always feel really bad for people who are "stuck" over things like this. XP
